#1595 closed Feature Request (Completed)

SupportedOS ID for manifest

Reported by: sklocke Owned by: trancexx
Milestone: Component: Aut2Exe
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: manifest windows7 Cc:

Description (last modified by trancexx)


With Windows 7, Microsoft introduces a new section in an application's manifest called Compatibility. In this section, entries supportedOS ID=<fixed value for OS> can be entered.
Currently, there exist fixed values for Windows Vista and Windows 7. Under Windows Vista and XP, this section is ignored.

One effect an entry for Windows 7 made in this section has is to disable the Program Compatibility Assisstant dialog that comes up under certain conditions and sometimes wrongly suggests to restart an executable in XP mode (which could break automated installation processes). I do not know all other effects, but Microsoft will at least tie down level support to these entries.

Feature request

Add option for Au2Exe to respectively include the Windows 7 or Windows Vista ID in this section of the manifest.

Hint: AutoIt3Wrapper is not an official first-party tool. It's 2nd-party. I do not care one way or the other if AutoIt3Wrapper contains this functionality. I want this functionality built into Aut2Exe and do not want this ticket closed as complete otherwise.

Apparently I have to do things myself if I wish for them to be done right.
